    Good Hotel Guide Review

    ‘Lovely, warm and welcoming’, Ian and Jane McAndrew’s restaurant-with-rooms, in a ‘beautiful’ 16th-century stone-built manse, is ‘well worth a detour for the food alone’. The chef/patron has received a Michelin star for his past cooking; guests this year confirm that his fine-dining and eight-course tasting menus, using much local produce, are still ‘a culinary triumph’. (Breakfast is ‘just as good’.) Bedrooms (some undergoing refurbishment as the Guide went to press) have views over the garden and the River Nith, or towards the hills of Dumfries and Galloway; each is supplied with tea- and coffee-making facilities, home-made shortbread, Scottish tablet and bottled water. Adjacent to the hotel, the River Suite (‘very peaceful and private’) has its own patio, with a magnificent view of the river. Bring young gourmands: ‘The kids were made as welcome as we were.’ Bar, restaurant, breakfast/function room, library, conservatory. Free Wi-Fi (can be limited), in-room TV (Freeview). ‘Easy listening’ background music. Weddings, functions. 2-acre grounds. Good riverbank walks, cycling. Cookery school. Fishing, shooting, photography breaks. Parking. Children (extra bed; over-5s £20 per night) and dogs (in some rooms; £10 per night) welcomed. 7 bedrooms (1 suite), plus two 2-bedroom self-catering cottages. Per room B&B from £120. Dinner £55, tasting menu £75.

    'Lovely warm, welcoming hotel. Our room was fabulous, with a four poster and a jacuzzi bath! Plenty of room for extra beds for the kids, who were made just as welcome as we were. Dinner was a culinary triumph! Ian's food is simply sublime. We had the 7 course tasting menu with specially selected glass of wine for each course. Couldn't fault anything! Enjoyed every single mouthful. Breakfast was just as good and the service and attention we received throughout was excellent. ' - Rachel Clayton - January, 2016
    'My fourth visit to this lovely, family-run country hotel. The food is brilliant and complemented by excellent service and a friendly atmosphere. A Michelin star chef without the corresponding prices makes this extremely good value for money. ' - William Lind - July, 2014
    'Ian and Jane McAndrew share a passion for providing a high-quality experience for visitors to this beautiful, but somewhat hidden area of Western Scotland. We have found this lovely house a rare delight. Ian and Jane are working on enhancing the already high-standard accommodation, but in the meantime a sublime dining experience is offered. The fine dining menu changes daily but always consists of the freshest food. Even breakfast is to be highly commended. ' - carol Gardner - April, 2015
